    it probably depends on what kind of plowing you'll be doing..i would stay away from a v blade..unless you have a municipality or state contract..

    If you are doing mostly residential then I would go no bigger than an 8' straight or v blade . I have some residential accounts where it's a pain to get in and maneuver around with my 7'6 Boss blade. I think an 8' straight blade would benefit you the best because it's small enough to do residential driveways but yet wide enough to parking lots. As far as brand goes, every plow has good and bad points.
